About the Course
A day spent designing and making your very own felted quirky bird with Ruth Packham.
Ruth makes probably 10-20 birds in a year and each one is unique. Like yours will, they evolve in the making process and are not fully fledged until having been spun in a washing machine. Ahhh….
Each bird goes through a number of processes and so you will learn about needle felting and dry felting techniques during the day. There will be a sumptuous array of dyed Cambrian and local Welsh Wool to choose from to decorate your bird. A day of playing and laughing as you give your bird character then spend hours massaging it with soapy water.
